I saw this fish done on TV a while back and decided I should try it. It is fresh halibut with a pepito crust (pumpkin seeds) I couldn't help but think it needed some sort of sauce on it when I saw the TV version, so I added some Hollandaise with some Chimayo, Ancho, and Pasilla powder added to the usual recipe.

It sat real nice with some oven roasted veggies.

That looks real good, Tim. :thumbs up: Care to elaborate a little bit more on the fish?

This makes two times I've seen pumpkin seeds used in a recipe. The first was useing them in a pesto.

That is a strange looking concoction there Tim. Hope it tasted good but I don't know about those pumpkin seeds. I guess if you add enough chimayo, pasilla, and ancho peppers it would have to taste gooood. Veggies look good.

Shoot, I must be tired. At first I thought it said Pepto Halibut. Must be what gives the Hollandaise its color.

Great lookin halibut stud. I think the sauce really adds to the visual. :thumbs up: :drooling:

Have you never had roasted pumpkin seeds? They are there for crunch as well as their rich nutty flavor. The Hollandaise would've been good w/o the chilis, but they really kicked it up, and I thought the color was nice too.

I think it was Guy Fieri that I saw do the seeds.

Thanx Derek. Pepitos are pumpkin seeds.

I dried the fish well, tossed in a bag of flour, dredged it through seasoned egg wash, then applied the seeds.

I pan seared it in butter and light Olive Oil, then finished in the Backwoods with no smoke other than the lump at about 300.

Ah. So the egg makes the seeds adhere. I was wondering.

Interesting. I'd hit it. I agree with Joe, the sauce - :msn-wink: :thumbs up:

Yeah, the flour followed by eggwash is the same type of foundation you would put under panko or something similar.

This looks particularly nice. I can just imagine the crunch, then the sauce hitting the pallet.

Hmmmmm

Easy enough to try. Perhaps you should. I thought about pistachios or sunflower seeds as well.

The sauce is textural as well as flavorful...prolly more textural.
